Tara focuses her practice on administrative, commercial, constitutional, and appellate litigation. She represents both public and private clients in complex disputes before Florida's Division of Administrative Hearings, the district courts of appeal, the Florida Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, assisting her clients as they navigate regulatory and political challenges. In addition to her experience in all aspects of appellate advocacy and procedure, Tara has extensive experience advising and litigating high-profile matters in federal district court on behalf of governmental clients, including the Florida Senate and Florida Secretary of State. She received her J.D. from Florida State University College of Law and her B.A. from the University of South Florida.
“Shutts & Bowen’s Appellate Practice Group has seen tremendous growth over the last two years and the addition of Tara’s substantial experience in appellate advocacy will further bolster the capabilities we offer to our clients,” said Jason Gonzalez, Managing Partner of Shutts’ Tallahassee office and Chair of the firm’s Appellate Practice Group.
“I am thrilled to join the accomplished team of attorneys at Shutts and look forward to expanding my practice with one of Florida’s oldest statewide law firms,” said Tara.
